Weekend away in SA November 2014 (Part 1)

Last week Joel and Abby came over from next door. Of course, there always has to be treats at Gran's house. Joel walks in and says: "Aunty Rina, I'm hungry for Nesquick" He then opens the fridge, takes out the milk and places it on the table. Then he fetches his and Abby's cups from a special place in the cupboard. Rina keeps Nesquick (chocolate milk powder) especially for the children.

 Outside on the patio, Angie and Megan relax in the shade 

 Eddie never relaxes! Here she lies in the sun panting after a run around the garden 
 Chappie also relaxes on the patio
Tipsy, one of Rina's two cats that I sent out from Tanzania last year, has never had it so good! 
Likewise, his brother, Topsy lies in the sun on "their" chairs! 

Over the weekend we traveled down to Kwa-Zulu Natal to visit family and friends. First we stopped at Grant's aunt, Gill and her husband, Neville. Gill served us with a delicious light lunch and we showed them photos of Pam's new abode in the retirement center in Marquard.
